A Garden Party is Proud to Show off our Newest Arrival!

Sam David made his debut just about two weeks ago now on January 13th at 11:58pm.  He squeaked in on Friday the 13th with a mere two minutes to spare!  Mary did awesome, not only did she deliver on her due date, but she also had him in under an hour from the time she got to the hospital (LUCKY girl - I am soooo jealous!).  Tina stopped by to visit Mary once she got home and caught so many amazing, perfect pictures of baby Sam that this proud aunt couldn't resist dedicating a blog post to him.  Lee got his own blog post, a few years ago, so it is only fair that Sam have his moment in the spotlight!  I also wanted to take a minute to talk about our newborn photo class that Ryan and Colleen at RHM Photography are holding this weekend.  Sam is one of the 3 models and there are still spots open for anyone looking to learn how to use their DSLR camera or interested in newborn photography.  You can see some more info about the class here.  The class will be held in Elmer on Saturday, February 4th at 10am.  Please contact me ASAP if you would like to participate, Dawn@agardenpartyllc.com.  These two do an amazing job and I am super excited to hear all their tips for me.  I am one of those people that owns a DSLR camera...with the best of intents to use it...and yet hardly ever use it because it overwhelms me.  Yes folks, I can handle close to 100 weddings in a year, but a DSLR camera overwhelms me.  Hey - we can't all be good at everything!  Anyways, check out these photos that Tina caught; pictures of tiny new babies are always the best!

Little Sam all bundled up like a baby burrito <3

Here he is peeking at Tina!

I have this conflict now everyday when I am work...how am I supposed to focus on work and not just hold this sweet little baby all day long??? Advice???

The trifecta kiss!

Lee is an amazing big brother!

I don't think Mary will ever have a shortage of hugs!

Thanks to all of our brides for their kind words after Mary had the baby.  You girls are the sweetest!  Mary has been back in the office off and on (I knew she wouldn't be able to stay out long!) but for the time being I am handling most of the e-mails, phone calls, etc.  Thank you all for your patience!
